If you’ve read my post on Spring Skin, then you know that I’m on a journey to find products that will help improve my overall skin tone, make it more even and stay moisturized. I’ve been hearing quite a bit about the powers of Vitamin C and how it can dramatically help improve the quality and appearance of one’s skin so after seeing numerous ads for Clinique’s Fresh Pressed Vitamin C Powder, I decided to give it a try for myself and report my findings with you all.
Two things initially drew me to this product, the first being the innovative technology. I had never heard of a facial cleanser that was in powder form and that only needed water to be used. This is so practical especially if you travel a lot and don’t want to have to bring along your full-size cleanser or invest in travel size cleaners. Simply pop this into your travel bag and you’re good to go.
The second thing that intrigued me about that it is a vitamin C facial cleanser. I had heard of vitamin C Serums but not of the cleanser contained a high dose of Vitamin C (10%).
* Note: For the purposes of this blog post I will only be reviewing the powder. I will feature an update on this post later on as I have recently purchased the 1 week supply with the booster. Also, this is not an advertisement or collaboration with Clinique and I have not been paid in any way to write this review. This is simply my honest opinion on using the product sample and my goal is to provide you with my first-hand experience.
What exactly is it for
This powder-based cleanser is packed with vitamin C and is meant to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and even out your skin tone without being harsh on the skin.
Maltodextrin, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Sodium Cocoy lsethionate, Sodium Methyl Cocoycl Turate, Kaolin, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Chloride, Sapindus, Mukurossi Peel Extract, Salicylic Acid, Allyl Methacrylates Crosspolymer, Cyclodextrin, Coconut Acid, Ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol manganese chloride, water/aqua/eau, disodium EDTA [ILN430340].
Where you can buy it
Online on Clinique’s Website, Amazon, Sephora, Douglas and at other local beauty store provider wherever Clinique products are sold.
1 months supply (packets only) 30 €.
You can also buy a 1 weeks supply in combination with the Daily Booster for 29 €.
Smell & Texture
Very light and pleasant clean fragrance not too strong.
Lightweight, silky, fine white powder.
Small single-use packages, easy to open. Practical for on the go.
Ease of Use
I loved just how easy it was to use and how gentle it was on my combination & sensitive skin. Simply rip open the package, pour contents onto wet hands and work into a lather (it provided an impressive amount of lather, so be prepared!). Apply to the face and let it sit for 1 minute before rinsing it off with cool water. After patting my skin dry my face felt instantly refreshed, clean and radiant.
I noticed results directly after first use and even more after 3 days. My skin appeared glowing and more radiant, it helped with my hyperpigmentation and it just made my skin feel incredibly soft. I also felt like it helped my moisturizer absorb better into my skin.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the results I got with this product and I would highly recommend it to those who want to start incorporating Vitamin C into their skincare routines without having to spend a fortune for it. I would see myself using this product not only while on vacation but also leading up to an important event and during those times where my skin needs some serious TenderLovingCare.
In terms of price point, I would say it is a fair price considering that many vitamin C serums alone will start at about 35 €. If you do plan on purchasing it, I would recommend purchasing both the powder with the Daily Booster as these were actually designed to be used together.
One thing that I think they could improve on would be the packaging of the packets. I would prefer to split the single package into two sections one for am and the other for pm as we cleanse our face twice a day and from my experience, half of a package was entirely enough product to cleanse my face with. This is actually something that I did and I found it to be more practical that way.
